Wow guys, that was an amazing battle. I never really post, but I lurk in audio a lot, so I can say, this was very impressive.
I liked how SJD pulled off the fast-rapping. Everything bled together well, but I didn't really feel it in his voice. I mean, he did great, but as many disses as he thew out, he didn't really have the tone to back it.
Gasmasq threw back some great punches, and what I liked about his verses is that he put a lot of feeling behind his words, and to me, that is a game winner. He may not have spit as fast, or flowed with the beat as well, but he really fought back hard.
To me, I think one of the really big important parts of battle rapping is how real it sounds. If I listen to a track where two people are throwing out punches like they don't know each other, or are unsure of their words, it's not really a convincing BATTLE. It's just a cleverly worded rap song with insults.
That's why I have to give this one to Gasmasq. He made it feel real, like there was serious tension. I felt more than just the disses. I felt the actual punch from his vocal cords.
You can express more with less words if you use the right emotion.
Great battle rap, guys :)
